Believers did not celebrate Yeshua's birthday
Xmas is very important to Christians all though it is not mentioned
in the New Testament and first believers did not celebrate it.
Actually they did not even know a feast called Xmas – not until
the 4th century BC. In history Xmas is first mentioned in a Roman
whit the birth day of Sol Invictus, Invincible Sun, on 25th of
December. It was not until c. 200 that Church Fathers Clement
born on the 25th of December.
This very day has also been the birth day of Baal, Nimrod, Tammuz,
Mithra, Horus, Isvara, Bacchus, Iacchus, Adonis, Attis, Zarathustra,
Marduk, Kronos, Poseidon, Acca Larentia and Thor. The birth day
of the Roman emperor was celebrated on that day too, whether he
was born on that dayor not.
How does Yeshua fit in that crowd? What has been the spirit working
in these clergymen, that they could place Yeshya in a crowd like that?
God warns about uniting the Biblical with the Pagan:
"Don’t be unequally yoked with unbelievers, for what fellowship
have righteousness and iniquity? Or what communion has light
with darkness? What agreement has Messiah with Beliya`al?
Or what portion has a believer with an unbeliever? What agreement
Even as God said, 'I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will
be their God, and they will be my people'" (2 Cor. 6:14-18).
According to the Scriptures it
is quite obvious that Yeshua was not born
in winter but at autumn in the month Tishrei (September-October).
The precise date is not known.
Xmas seems to be deeply
instilled into the hearts of many and even if
they understand its pagan nature they still try to mold it to be somehow
holy in order to be able to still celebrate it in some manner.
Celebration of Yeshua’s birthday is an invention of Roman
anti-Semitic replacement theology. Xmasis one of the festivals that
replaced the God given Appointed times (Lev. 23) that were rejected.
Concerning the festivals
believers ought to hold on to the Scriptures –
not to add anything in Scriptures. First believers did not celebrate
Yeshua’s birthday and it is not mentioned in the New Testament as
a festival, not even related to Succot festival. The time of Yeshua’s
possible conception is not mentioned to be happend during Chanukkah.
Because the Apostles did not
emphasize those things there no need
for us to do that either.
